Make Self-Compassion a Priority

12Now that we’re days into the New Year, those who set New Year’s Resolutions are in the thick of making their change. But before fully moving into the New Year, reviewing the past year – the good, bad, and ugly is necessary. Regardless of the ups and downs of 2015, how you understand them will directly impact how you move in 2016.

What relationships or situations brought you joy or love? What happened in 2015 that you want more of in 2016? Those are successes!

Do the same thing for the challenges of the year. What relationships or situations brought you heartache or regret?

Rather than wallow in the disappointments of this past year, take some time to understand what happened before you jump into setting 2016 New Year’s resolutions. Ask yourself:

  • What worked in 2015?
  • What am I proud of?
  • What didn’t go according to plan? Why not?
  • What or who do I need to change it?

Sometimes there are circumstances, like death, that are out of our control. Other times we are directly connected to our own disappointment. Understanding our role in our joys and regrets is useful in moving forward and doing it differently next times.
